I visited Kilcolgan Castle three years in a row and loved every minute there. It's a great location -- an easy drive to Galway, Connemara or the Burren -- yet the castle is its own private escape from the rest of the world. Explore the many rooms in the castle -- each with its own story -- walk the grounds, visit the animals, then settle down by the fire in one of the cozy rooms downstairs. Enjoy Karen's hearty breakfast and be sure to ask her to recommend one of the cool restaurants or pubs nearby.
